Keyboard and Biometric Moto Mods Coming in 2018

Keyboard and Biometric Moto Mods Coming in 2018

At CES 2018, Motorola has yet again announced two new Moto Mods.

As we read it as a slider keyboard.

President Trump mocked for possibly not knowing the National Anthem
President Trump is the oldest person to be elected president in US history, and his memory has often been called into question. The silent protests have received mixed responses with some calling it unpatriotic and disrespectful.

The second Moto Mod has been created by Livermorium, a company which won Motorola's Transform the Smartphone Challenge hosted in 2017. Lastly, the Moto TurboPower Pack Mod is priced at Rs 5,999, which has 3500mAh battery and is claimed to offer up to 7 hours of battery life within 15 minutes of charge. One is the Lenovo Vital Moto mod which is for keeping a track of your health and other is the Livermorium Slider keyboard, which as the name suggests is a slider qwerty keyboard for your Moto Z smartphone.

As Livermorium originally promised, the Slider Keyboard mod attaches to the back of your Moto Mod-compatible device, and brings back a full physical keyboard that slides out in landscape mode and tilts the screen up at a 60-degree angle. It also measure your pulse oximetry levels, or how much oxygen is in your blood, and the two common types of blood pressure readings. You have until February 6th to submit your idea, and a select few will receive a Moto Z plus a Moto Mod development kit before working with Indiegogo to get funding for your creation. Strangely enough the victor of the "Transform Challenge" is a Qwerty keyboard. Will you be slapping this mod on your Moto Z phone? In some sense, the keyboard Moto Mod remind me of the yesteryears HTC S710. If you're looking to pick either of these up you'll have a little bit of a wait, as Motorola says that the keyboard mod will be available sometime during this winter for $99, though it doesn't mention when specifically, so it could be later in January or at some point next month.

WhatsApp brings quick switch to video call in the latest beta update
In 2016, WhatsApp added video call functionality to their app but there was no update to that option until now. This essentially means, users will soon be able to post Instagram Stories directly as WhatsApp Stories .

Lenovo-owned Motorola might have been onto something with its modular phone accessories for the Moto Z series, but a combination of slow development of compelling products and poor availability leaves them in a precarious position.

Jon Gruden's Hiring Could be Good News for NDSU Draft Hopefuls
